Today (April 22nd) is Earth Day, an international event celebrated around the world to pledge support for environmental protection. The year 2021 marks the 51st anniversary of the annual celebrations. This year’s theme for Earth Day is ‘Restore our Earth’.
There are lots of ways to support or get involved. This could involve anything from litter picking to planting new trees. In support of Earth Day this year we have created some colouring sheets for young children to enjoy. Please show us their masterpieces for a chance to win a reusable water bottle. If your child wants to design their own, we would love to see it, please email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
The idea behind Earth Day first originated amoung the people fighting the 1969 Santa Barbara oil spill. It was a shocking disaster and to help prevent future cases, Earth Day was created.
The first Earth Day, held in 1970 saw millions of people around the world wanting to make a stand for environmental change. Since then, Earth Day has gone from strength to strength. Visit the Earth Day website to learn about environmental issues and find out how you can help.
